This role is ideal for a developing Sales Account Executive or BDM who is not afraid of ambiguity, and gets excited by developing processes while executing in parallel . We are excited to have people join us who will roll-up their sleeves to help establish a healthy pipeline, and define the Sales roadmap that will help to grow one of Australia's most exciting new fintechs.
